Named after the indelible scene in the classic movie, A Christmas Story, today’s Drink of the Week offers a double dose of cinnamon, thanks to a spiced syrup and the cinnamon-forward Czech liqueur, Becherovka (check out our Nov/Dec issue for more Becherovka cocktail recipes).

You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out

2 oz. aged rum

1/2 oz. Becherovka

1/2 oz. Bénédictine

1/4 oz. cinnamon syrup (recipe here, or use a bottled version, like B.G. Reynolds’)

3 dashes Angostura bitters

Tools: mixing glass, barspoon, strainer

Glass: rocks or cocktail

Garnish: orange twist

Combine all ingredients with ice and stir. Strain into a chilled glass and garnish.
